    I have recently been to a few different chicken swaps in my area, and have noticed an odd lack of the golden campine breed. I have only seen them once before at a swap, and I was wondering if they are an uncommon breed. Our own golden campines seem nice enough, our roo is a bit bitey though,. So are they unpopular uncommon or what?

    The CAMPINE is very uncommon.
    I'd consider their world wide status extremely rare.
    I'd love to get ahold of some true golds that meet the campine standards. [​IMG]

    I agree. Golden Campines are pretty uncommon. Silver Campines even more rare. There are a few hatcheries that sell Campines, but most do not come close to meeting the standard. In my experience, most hatchery Campines are too small and much more flighty than exhibition lines, not to mention the poor barring. Heritage or exhibition Campines are beyond rare. IMHO, Campines are fantastic birds and are in great need of more dedicated breeders.
